Fahrenheit 451: la temperatura a la que el papel se enciende y arde.

Como 1984, de George Orwell, como Un ...

    I am in 6th grade. My Language Arts teacher assigns us a book report; tells us we can choose the book but that our grade will be based on the maturity of the novel the report is based upon.My mother and I are in K-mart. I've mentioned to her about this book report to be done, and so before we leave with a basket filled with clothes I know I will be embarrassed to wear, we stop by the rack of books. She selects a few pulp paperback titles, throws ...

    Somehow, I have gotten through life as an English major, book geek, and a science-fiction nerd without ever having read this book. I vaguely remember picking it up in high-school and not getting very far with it. It was an interesting premise, but far too depressing for my tastes at the time.Fast-forward 15 years later. I just bought a copy the other day to register at BookCrossing for their Banned Books Month release challenge. The ALA celebrate...

    Farenheit 451 has been analyzed and reinterpreted by every successive generation to change its meaning. This is chiefly because the book is full of assumptions and vague symbolism which can be taken many ways, and rarely does anyone come away from the book with the conclusion the author intended, which would suggest that it is a failed attempt.There are grounds to contend that even the title is inaccurate, since contemporary sources suggest paper...

    As I write this review, the year is 2012. We do not live in a perfect world; in fact, in many ways we don't even live in a good world. But one thing I believe with all my heart is that we live in a world which, on the whole, is better than it was fifty years ago. Now, I know I'm writing with limited perspective and that progression and development hasn't been the same all over the globe and even the definition of those words can change depending ...

    Few appreciate irony as much as I do, so understand that I understand this review. The message of this book is decent: knowledge should not be censored. However, the rest of the book is utter shit. I found myself actually screaming at several points as Bradbury spent minutes and dozens of metaphors and allusions referring to one insignificant detail of the plot. It is too damn flowery to be understandable by anyone! In other words, an English tea...

    This was my first Ray Bradbury book. Do you know - that with 1, 117, 082 ratings, and 28, 668 reviews-I didn't have a clue what to expect from this book? I may have been the only person living under a rock - down deep beneath the earth -who knew nothing about this story! My Goodness ....... "I CANT IMAGINE A WORLD WITHOUT BOOKS!!!!!" I have in my hands a copy of the 60th Anniversary Edition. Neil Gaiman wrote the Introduction.... and really excel...

    "The good writers touch life often. The mediocre ones run a quick hand over her. The bad ones rape her and leave her for the flies."That is a very unpleasant metaphor, and Fahrenheit 451 is an unpleasant book. It feels like it was written by a teenager, and if I were his teacher I'd give it a B- and not let my daughter date the weird little kid who wrote it.Its protagonist, Montag, lacks any character; he changes as Bradbury's shitty story requir...

    Bradbury's Fahrenheit 451 is a novel that transcends it's dystopian theme and delivers its cautionary message in a timeless fashion, what made this story compelling in 1953 remains provocative. It is a strident call to arms, a warning siren of darkness always on the perimeter.Critics have tried to make more of this, and certainly it is an archetypal work, but I think its simplicity is its great strength - it is fundamentally about book burning, l...

    Library as cathedral, as all libraries should be - John Rylands Library, Manchester.Image source: http://www.library.manchester.ac.uk/a...Read me, love me, touch me, treasure meThis is a book about the power of books that is itself steeped with references, both explicit and indirect, to the great works that permeate our culture so thoroughly that we do not always notice them - until they’re gone.

    "We are living in a time when flowers are trying to live on flowers, instead of growing on good rain & black loam." (111)What outstanding prose--prophetic, which is by far the most rare and inspiring of attributes a work of literature can ever possess. And Ray "I Don't Talk Things, Sir. I Talk The Meaning Of Things" Bradbury is here at his absolute best. I cannot decide whether this or "Martian Chronicles" is my favorite... they are definitely my...

    Can you think of a more effective means of control?Can you think of a more effective means of keeping the population down? No?Well, me neither. The burning of books is such an effective tool, so the message of Ray Bradbury’s Fahrenheit 451 is scarily real; if society’s wisdom could be taken away then so could their freedom; if knowledge was burnt then the people would be left in a complete state of utter innocent ignorance. That way they coul...

    Is Fahrenheit 451 the temperature at which Kindles melt?This book is about censorship by book burning. Fahrenheit 451 is the temperature at which paper burns. This review is about reading Fahrenheit 451 or any other book considered controversial by any group at all and the future of censorship in the marketplace.Amazon, GrAmazon, is redefinining our experience of literature!

    The book starts with this sentence:It was a pleasure to burn! WOW AND I THOUGHT OKAY THEN LETS DO THIS!Fahrenheit Meaning: Fahrenheit is a temperature scale based on one proposed in 1724 by the Polish-born German physicist Daniel Gabriel Fahrenheit (1686–1736), after whom the scale is named. It uses the degree Fahrenheit (symbol °F) as the unit.By the end of the 20th century, Fahrenheit was only used as the official temperature scale in the Un...

    It’s easy to see why ‘Farenheit 451’ is a cult classic, beloved by the majority of bookworms. Oh, it validates us, doesn’t it? Here is a future world where books are banned, and look at this; it has gone to the dogs. The saddest of all post-apocalyptic worlds, the bleakest dystopia, what a nightmare – NO BOOKS!The good are those who read, the bad are those who watch the TV. Yes, this is what we like to read to make us feel all warm insi...

    Believe me, I'm not the kind of guy who gushes over classics simply by virtue of the fact that they are classics, but this one was worth all the legend that it carries with it. I'm glad I never had to read this book in highschool. First of all, we would have ruined this truly awesome story by overanalyzing every mundane literary aspect, detail and device. Second, the story is SO much more profound in the year 2008 at the age of 30 than it could h...

    Ever seen a bunch of individuals walking down the street with their noses in the cell phones unaware of the real world around them? (Yep that's us, The Millenials) Ever wonder about the growing government surveillance? Banning of books or artists because it offended some minority group? Ray Bradbury knew about all of this 60 years ago I'm not sure I can offer you anything new about a book so widely read and known. What is there to be said about ...

    You can check out thousands of better reviews here and across the internet, but here is all you really need to know...This is one of the best books ever written. This is one of my favorite books of all time. ALL TIME. This is the third time I've read it. I audiobooked it this time. Every line of Fahrenheit 451 is beautifully written. Poetic. Metaphoric. Transcendent. Awesome. The beginning, middle, and ending... all amazing. If you consider yours...

    so i decided that this is the summer i read all the books i "should" have read by now- all the classics i have not gotten around to. this was, oddly, sparked by that asshole that said to alyssa "this is why small bookstores are better - no one in big bookstores knows anything about books". which is, of course, inaccurate and ridiculous - poor alyssa is a nineteen year old girl who has not read any philip roth, and wasnt able to recommend a title ...

    In a not too distant future, owning books is against the law. Firemen burn property instead of protect it and everyone is dialed in to their televisions, subsisting on a steady stream of sensational media stories and vapid entertainment to numb their quickly congealing brains. The nation is always at war, but you would never guess it from the populace's empty conversations and emptier dreams. Guy Montag longs for something different, but what exa...

    It was a pleasure to read.I was somewhat blown away by this novel. Perhaps it is simply my personal taste. I seem to enjoy novels about the future and in particular ones with a dystopian element. (see my reviews of Brave New World and 1984 for example)I have read a handful of articles about how in analysing this novel most people miss the target. They claim it is a novel about book censorship whereas Bradbury claims it is more a novel focusing on...

    "The magic is only in what books say, how they stitched the patches of the universe together into one garment for us."I'm surprised this book wasn't required reading while I was in high school, a hiatus in my curriculum which is probably the reason why I got to this party so late. You all know what this book is about, even I knew what it was about before reading it, so I'll skip immediately to my ponderings while I was reading this book. Have a l...

    Review from Aug2012 when I listened to the audio version (d/l from local library) excellently read by Christopher Hurt:From Wikipedia: "Bradbury has stated that the novel is not about censorship, but a story about how television destroys interest in reading literature, which leads to a perception of knowledge as being composed of factoids, partial information devoid of context." That's scarily familiar, isn't it?- It has biometrics. Montag comes ...

    This is one of those books that I love the idea of it a lot more than the read itself.I "read" this in high school and understood nothing (I barely knew a few words in English!) and honestly would not recommend it if you're just starting out since even now it's not an easy read!The dystopian world depicted is frighteningly too close to where we're going...

    I heard that this was a great book, and I really wanted to like it. The title and the quips on the back cover caught my interest. Guy Montag is a fireman, but the job is flipped. Instead of putting out fires, he is creating them, and he likes it a lot. The first sentence, "It was a pleasure to burn", and the following description after, had me convinced that I would enjoy the book. Not only that, New York Times professes that the book is "frighte...

    “There must be something in books, things we can’t imagine, to make a woman stay in a burning house; there must be something there. You don’t stay for nothing.” It’s amazingly enchanting how an author like Ray Bradbury could have such an astounding foresight by writing this book. Fahrenheit 451 written in 1953 is a unique eutopian turned dystopian story that seems to me a sort of a premonition of our society today (of course in a much s...
